Approval for $650m hybrid power station

A $650m gas, solar and battery power station has been approved by the South Australian government with the proposed facility set to supply 550,000 homes by 2022.

The Australian is reporting the Summerfield power plant, owned by private developer South Australia Power Generation, aims to tap hybrid power technology for the 410MW project to be built 55km east of Adelaide at Tepko.

Some 380MW of the electricity supply will be sourced from gas alongside a 30MW battery and 12MW of solar with GE providing the technology for the hybrid facility.

Up to 700 jobs will be created through the construction phase from early 2021 and 100 full-time roles once operations start up in 2022.
